VMware justifie habilement le retard de son hyperviseur bare-metal

Faute de combattants, la bataille des hyperviseurs bare-metal est reportée à 2011. Mais en attendant, VMware, Citrix et plusieurs start-ups prometteuse travaillent d'arrache-pied pour répondre à la demande des utilisateurs et des constructeurs de PC. Contre toute attente, VMware prétend qu'il n'a pas besoin de tenir sa promesse de fournir un hyperviseur bare-metal pour poste de travail, et que s'il avait à choisir un outil de ce type ce serait celui de Citrix. "Il est temps de remettre les pendules à l'heure», explique... [Lire la suite]

Guest Paging vs. Virtualization Paging and Negative Memory Availability

Jeff has discussed this at some length over on the virtualization team blog, but as a general rule of thumb we believe that it is much better to have paging occur inside the guest operating system rather than at the virtualization layer (if paging is needed). The simple reason for this is that the guest operating system has far better understanding of which are the best sections of memory to page out – where as all the virtualization layer can do is to guess at what should be paged out. In my recent demonstrations of dynamic... [Lire la suite]

Exchange 2010 SP1 Setup Error – MSExchange Transport Failed To Reach Status “Running” On This Server

Most exchange admins should be familiar with this error message by now. I ran a clean install of Exchange 2010 SP1 RTM, only to find this error message. MSExchange Transport failed to reach status “running” on this server. The cause is the same, as in previous versions. Check my previous article for more info. This happens when IPv6 is unchecked in the TCP/IP properties of the NIC, but not disabled fully in registry. This issue was fixed in the previous version rollups, but is now back with 2010 SP1 RTM. I checked IPv6... [Lire la suite]

Support de la réplication du profil de l’utilisateur

Depuis Windows 95, on disposait des profils errants. Avec l’arrivée de la virtialisation de présentation (Terminal Server / Citrix), on a  réutilisé ces même profils errants, tout comme pour le VDI. Avec l’arrivée de ces nouvelles infrastructures, le stockage des profils errants en un point unique est considéré comme un SPOF (Single point of Failure). La consolidation des infrastructures pose le problème de la disponibilité des profils errants. Tout de suite, le première réflexe, c’est DFS-N et DFS-R. La... [Lire la suite]
